UK travellers find more to Cyprus holidays than sun and sea

With a shorter flight than a destination in the Caribbean, many travellers from the UK are choosing to take holidays to Cyprus this winter because of the diversity culture, fine cuisine, and stunning surroundings the third largest Mediterranean island has to offer.

Located in western Cyprus, Paphos is a popular destination with UK travellers taking holidays in Cyprus all year round because of it family friendly facilities, warm temperatures, and large number of historical sites and attractions. The fact that it is home to the goddess of beauty and love, Aphrodite, is another reason why so many people are keen to explore this part of the island.

Originally a fishing port, Paphos is now a thriving tourist town providing regular boat excursions, an array of gourmet restaurants with traditional Cypriot dishes, and shops full of trinkets and memorabilia to remind visitors on Cyprus holidays of their time spent there.
With a range of luxury resorts and hotels to suit all budgets, Cyprus provides visitors with a unique experience rich with culture, history and stunning scenery.

Despite the Turkish still occupying the northern part of Cyprus, there are still plenty of sights to explore around the island including the Troodos Mountains and the smaller Kyrenia Range. During the spring months, the island's wildlife comes alive sporting beautiful wild flowers which can be seen everywhere.

Cyprus is widely known for its main cities Agia Napa, Lemesos (Limasol), and Paphos but if travellers wander off the main commercial routes they will find an array of traditional villages nestled within the hillsides and along the coast of the island. Here visitors on Cyprus holidays will witness the true traditional lifestyle of the Cypriot communities, as well as a number of stunning sights including medieval castles and forgotten cities.

The climate of Cyprus offers visitors scorching summers and mild winters and a short transition period between the two seasons. With more charter flights on offer from a number of airlines, Cyprus is fast becoming a travel destination for UK visitors and travellers from all over the world.
